Connecting busy New Yorkers to volunteer opportunities - and each other

Urban Adventures



Urban Adventures works with Manhattan Middle School to provide an educational and recreational outlet to seventh graders. As many as 20-35 students can participate look to the program as an opportunity to explore the city. The group meets one Saturday per month for four to six hours to explore museums, parks, exhibits, zoos, etc. We encourage consistent involvement from volunteers but welcome any and all interest in the program. Please note that while we always cover full admission for the students, volunteers are required to pay their own admission into each event.
